Flaamezz - Contributed

The one thing that will remain constant about upcoming reggae and dancehall artiste Flaamezz when he gets a breakthrough in music, is his will to continuously produce music that is positive and uplifting.

The singjay whose real name ShanShane Allen, has made a steady rise in music since he decided two years ago to act upon his childhood dream of taking up the profession as a permanent career choice.

He has, to date, released two singles, Good Body Gyal on Tray Productions, which was produced by Trinidad-based Neecaz Records and Gone But Not Forgotten for Realest Production, which is based in England. He's getting ready to release a new track next year titled Ghetto Life.

mission for success

The 20-something-year-old, who was born in Kingston, grew up in May Pen, Clarendon but now resides in Mandeville. He says he's on a personal mission to achieve success with music that uplifts hearts and souls around the world.

He, like most upcoming artistes, has had to deal with constant disappointments and embarrassment, but none will deter his spirit.

"So far it is rough. You experience a lot of fight, crazy disappointments like working without pay, going to studio with the hope to voice and producer shun you. But I am very confident in myself, and these are some of the things that I used to motivate myself," he said

The singjay, who is also a member of a music group called Blue Flames Production, said he looks up to established artistes like Bounty Killer, Sizzla Kalonji, Busy Signal and Mandeville-based producer and recording artiste Lee'Tal.

He's not coming into the business for the hype, money or the lavish lifestyle. Flaamezz backs himself as be humble. His main aim is to provide quality music that will uplift souls and set an example for his one-year-old daughter.

"I know people reading this might say that I am just saying this because I am a young artiste and that I will become 'hype' when the breakthrough comes. But that is definitely not my aim. I just want to inspire people with my message and to set a good example for my daughter," he said.

He added; "I see myself as a leading Jamaican artiste impacting the world for many years to come."
